German FM: Comprehensive solution begins with cessation of sending weapons, mercenaries to Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

NEW YORK – German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that the rapprochement that occurred between the Libyan Government and the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) during the past few weeks was a big step forward, stressing cooperation with the United Nations for the full implementation of the decisions of the Berlin conference.

Maas, during his speech at the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, called on foreign powers to stop sending weapons and mercenaries to fuel the conflict, in order to reach a comprehensive solution in Libya.

The German minister indicated that this would be the matter when he and the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, bring the supporters of the Berlin process together again at the beginning of next October, to oblige them to fulfill their promises.
